Crucial games lined up for Phoenix

The Fuel Masters dropped to 3-3 this conference after squandering a 12-point halftime lead in a 106-94 defeat to the defending champion San Miguel Beermen last Wednesday, but Wright opted not to cry over spilled milk despite the missed opportunity.

“I’m not worried about us,” said Wright. “We just have to forget about this game, have amnesia and come back. We have back-to-back games that we have to go 2-0 and that’s gonna be our focus.”

Phoenix plays Meralco on June 8 before meeting Columbian Dyip on June 10, both slated at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Winning both games will give the Louie Alas-coached Fuel Masters a big boost in their playoff aspirations that is why Wright wants to be as fresh as he could during the respite.

Wright endured a gruelling stretch last week when he participated in all three legs of the PBA All-Star Week in Davao, Batangas and Iloilo.
